I got a choice to make this week. Do I dare take Jordan Spieth in my fantasy golf picks this week at the RBC Heritage coming off a Masters victory and a media whirlwind tour over the last two days? Will he be ready to go come Thursday or will he be hungover from all the interviews he’s done since winning The Masters last Sunday.
Harbour Town Golf Links is a rather short course for PGA Tour standards. Stretching to 7,101 yards, this par-71 course requires precise golf shots. Jack Nicklaus and Pete Dye designed this course together and it’s become one of the favorites for PGA Tour pros.
You’ll have to keep it in the fairway and land your golf ball on the right portion of the greens here at Harbour Town or you’ll be in trouble this week.
Matt Kurchar was your 2014 RBC Heritage champion and will be back to defend this week in a field that will include your 2015 Masters champion, Jordan Spieth. Kuchar won last year’s RBC Heritage at 11-under par and held off Luke Donald, John Huh and Ben Martin to slip on the plaid jacket.

Coming off a T-12 at The Masters might get Streelman going. Finished T-3 at RBC two years ago and has had other good showings as well.
Played well at Harbour Town Golf Links in the past. Top-20 finishes last three trips to RBC Heritage. I am going to take a flyer on Pat this week and hope he can get a victory.
Need I say more about Furyk at the RBC Heritage? Plays this course very well and finished T-7 last year with a victory in 2010. Not that long of a course so good ball strikers tend to do well here. Expect Furyk to be one of the ones to slip on the plaid jacket.
68-68 on the weekend at Augusta is sweet. Will this propel Zach into a good stretch of golf starting with a victory at RBC? Short course should fit Zach Johnson’s eye.
